NLR Minute 11/01 - Solidarity. Realignment. Shame.

Thousands of CUPE members in New Brunswick are exercising their right to withhold their labour — and Premier Blaine Higgs is threatening to do everything in his power to force them back to work.

Then, it's time for a realignment in the HoC! We discuss who's vote has more impact, what the newly minted seats mean for the balance of power, and what we can do to limit the hegemony of Ontario in the legislature.

We round out the show with the shameful action by the Liberal government, once again taking Indigenous kids to court — even after Justin Trudeau looked into our faces and said his government didn't do this. Will there ever be justice?
